I dont believe the Franken accusers

Call me bias, but I think it is a political hit job. A way to blurr the lines for the right wing to say all sides are doing it. A way to silence a strong liberal voice. They took one bad photo to come up with a story. Even the original “victim” seeked for more women to come out when she spoke the line “unless there are more women.”

Women with a political ax to grind are now searching for photos that they took with Franken to come up with a story.

Damn! I sound like a Roy Moore supporter. And that I s what the right wing wanted.

It sounds like he has been recruiting, as we saw with the fake Moore accuser.

Senator Franken has been pretty relentless in his questioning during hearings. No doubt they'd like to silence him.

And pretty obvious to anyone with the slightest bit of critical thinking. You are spot on.

It’s extremely frustrating, isn’t it?

Like: How come the Named accusers are Trumpsters, but only the anonymous ones are Democrats?

How did two anonymous people who didn’t know each other and didn’t coordinate their stories happen to have contacted the same person at the Huffington Post?

Why is that the journalist the last named accuser went to?

How come the last anonymous accuser, “a former politician,” went to another blogging site?

How come the blogger at Jezebel just happens to have a documented record of defending hoaxers, like at UVA, even after exposure of being a hoax?

How come the media doesn’t point out that the pictures don’t show what the accusers claim they show?

How come the reputable media hadn’t been able to verify ANY of this beyond easy public record?

How come all six accusers are so sure he’s a serial predator who gets off in front of doing this in front of the camera in full view of everyone, yet literally no one has EVER seen it?

Out of tens of thousands of photo ops, in which this alleged serial groper is groping people in front of a camera, why has it NEVER been captured on camera?

How come one of the HuffPo stories include three paragraphs shaming Franken that come from — wait for it — a woman that is pretty sure Al Franken looked at her boobs in 2006?

Why does she get more quote than the actual accusers?

Why on earth would that reporter — or anyone else — see “I was at that party and he looked at my boobs” see that as corroboration?

Why does the latest anonymous accuser think we’d believe that she could discern from a cheek kiss Al Franken’s secret desires?

Does she think she’s psychic?

Why would Al Franken not think someone would NOT notice his sloppy wet tongue kiss — forced on some unwitting city councilwoman — on a stage, in front of video and still cameras, his own wife, and a thousand live witnesses?

The questions and coincidences just go on and on and on...
